New Jersey Ending Mechanical Inspections for Vehicles Tomorrow

2

car-inspectionTomorrow is the last day that New Jersey will inspect motor vehicles for mechanical problems. Inspection stations will just check emissions on vehicles five years or older starting Monday.

Motor Vehicle Commission administrator Raymond Martinez says the changes will save the state about $17 million. Most of the savings come from scrapping 2.4 million mechanical inspections and re-inspections performed each year and by shifting new car emissions testing back a year.

School buses, limousines, jitneys, taxis and other commercial-plated vehicles will still be checked for emissions and mechanical defects.

New Jersey will become the 30th state that doesn’t look for bald tires, worn brakes, non-working lights and turn signals, and cracked windshields.

  1. “New Jersey will become the 30th state that doesnÂ’t look for bald tires, worn brakes, non-working lights and turn signals, and cracked windshields.”

    These are normal maintenance items that are clearly the responsibility of the owner/operator. Further if, C’V, the owner gets into an accident that turns out to be caused by by poor maintenance the accident should be deemed his/her fault.

  2. This is a good way to save money for this poor sate. continue doing good…
    This private company would fail your car in NJ so they can get it reinspected to make more money.
